It's that time of the month when Tracey Joseph and I ask what you've all been up to this month :D

Previously in Writing
I received some incredibly useful agent feedback on a book, so I've been applying that. I've also been editing the second Ghost!Story book. It's exciting to be getting that book into shape. I'm going to change a massive chunk of it quite dramatically. I can't wait :D
Previously in Reading
I read The People Vs OJ Simpson because the TV show hooked me, but I wanted all of the details. It was absolutely fascinating. Highly recommended for true crime fans. I have a burning urge to write a crime thriller now :P
You should check out the show, too. It's available on iPlayer in the UK. Without the book's authorial voice, I think it leaves the final decision up to you. The book, while presenting both the prosecution and the defense's cases, is definitely more one-sided.
Next Time in Goals
Hooray, I did indeed finish typing up Ghost!Story book 2's edits. Time to get ready for the big paper edit. Red pen at the ready! So goal number one, continuing editing!
I also memorised the key of D on the violin. That's made things a lot easier. When I went to Glasgow the other weekend, I stopped by a gorgeous violin shop.
Also, my eldest brother and I bought our mum a piano for her birthday. Well, we had to compete with our middle brother providing the first grandchild somehow. So, goal number two for the month is to continue self-teaching the piano when I can get my hands on it.
A Word of Advice
My advice regarding agent feedback is give it a lot of thought before you make big changes. I gave it a solid week before I sat down and put the suggestions into action, and another week before I decided I wanted to go with it.
